To remove this part, just curious, before I start taking every thing apart.. if you loosen the brass valve screw"part #32". Is the correct way to get to this grouphead filter ?? or do you have to go from above ?
thanks

As I recall, I had to disconnect the water fittings and electrical connections from the top of the boiler in order to access and remove nuts 16 and 15 from screws 34 (four each).  Then you can completely disassemble the boiler, clean it up and inspect all the parts.  I had a cracked electrode that wasn't evident until I got inside it.  See the tear-down instructions for the Saeco machine on this site.

The machine has worked like a champ since the above mentioned repairs.  Just be cautious to note where the nuts and electrical connections are situated as you disassemble.  I don't think it's evident from the diagram that nut 15 secures the boiler together before putting it in the page 1 item 31 upper plate; then 16 just holds the assembled boiler in place, and needs only finger tightening.  I struggled with a leaky boiler until I realized nut 15 does most of the work and doesn't straddle p1-31.

Can someone post a picture of the wiring setup? I have the barista sin006 and need to see the wire attachments for the underside of the connects near the steam valve. Thanks in advance.
